Development of Collaborative Model for Energy Management in Vocational Institutes
The objectives of this research were to: 1) develop the collaborative model for energy management in vocational institutes, and 2)develop training courses, evaluate the model appropriateness and the efficiency of the training program. The current vocational institutes situations and needs were surveyed using questionnaire. The surveyed data were analyzed and synthesized to draft a model and be verified by a focus group. A training program was then created from the developed model to manage the energy in vocational institutes efficiently. The results could be concluded as follows: 1) the appropriateness of the developed model, based on the PDCA cycle, was high 2) the evaluation through CIPP model revealed the results as follows: 2.1) the context evaluation presented high congruence between the training topic and objectives with very high appropriateness; 2.2) the input evaluation presented a very high appropriateness and a high congruence in every aspect. The efficiency of the try-out training were 83.45/87.50 and 86.25 for the theoretical and practical parts, respectively; 2.3) the process evaluation reported that the efficiency of the training were 84.50/89.33 and 87.00 for the theoretical and practical parts, which were higher than the set criteria; 2.4) the product evaluation revealed that the training handbook was highly efficient with an excellent appropriateness evaluation result. Trainees and executives could efficiently apply the knowledge and skills from the training program to manage the energy in vocational institutes. In addition, the overall evaluation result was in the level of excellence.
